what causes such a gap in life expectancy between genders in my family ?
Every family member of mine that has died in the last 30 years regardless of generation had one thing in common the women lived into their 80's the men their 60's diabetes runs in our family for both genders but that is about it. Its weird my mom being 20 years older then me but there is a good chance that she may outlive me slightly

This is a typical sex difference across the population. Females tend to outlive males for purely biological reasons, natural deaths considered.
